The Information Systems major consists of a 60 credit curriculum leading to an Associate of Science degree. Information Systems majors gain hands-on experience as well as conceptual knowledge in a broad range of information technologies and systems. Foundation courses focus on specific technologies while upper level courses concentrate on application and integration of technologies in the business environment. This program prepares students for entry-level positions in the field of Information Systems.
